The Infant Development and the Environment Study – Phase III (TIDES III); Endocrine Disruption, Hormones, and Sex Differences in Adolescent Airway Health


What is the goal of the study?

This is an observational study of a longitudinal cohort of healthy families in Seattle, San Francisco, Rochester, and Minnesota. Participants enrolled during pregnancy in 2010 – 2021 and have been followed subsequently as part of the Infant Development and the Environment Study (TIDES) that has had two previous NIEHS R01 grants and related protocols (PIROSTUDY13443, PIROSTUDY15803 and STUDY00002006, SITE00000782) The current study will determine if common chemicals in our environment affect adolescent lung health, including lung function and inflammation. These chemicals can also affect hormones like testosterone and estrogen therefore, we will determine if they affect male and female lung health differently.
